Fox Fisher; 2017; UK; 58 min.; in English and Icelandic with English subtitles

Fox and Owl Fisher are nonbinary trans activists from the UK—and they want to share what that means for them. With help from their community and loved ones, they explore issues such as legal recognition, language, health care, and social acceptance, delineating the challenges that they and many other people like them face daily. While education and social justice are at the heart of this film, it is also a love story of two people from different backgrounds finding each other. Through romance and activism, this couple defies gender norms and resists systems of oppression.
